My solar Ha and animation

Recommended Posts

A pleasant couple of hours in the garden this morning with the 120mm frac with a LS60f filter up front. Plenty to see today and image today, but I only took a handful images and then went for the animation sequence. Here are the Ha images. These are single stack pics.

This was a the big southern filament. Yes the orientation is wrong but you can't have everything.

Next up, a detached prom.

This one one of the best regions today. A big snaking filament and a lovely active prom on the limb.

Then there is the animation. This clip covers approx. 1hr in the life of the sun. 20sec Avi's were captured every 30 secs. I lost some due to odd cloud and bad tracking, and it was a 5hr job processing this coz it wouldn't align. So this is all done by hand. What a tedious job that was.

Thanks guys and Alex. :kiss:

i hope your tracking was better than mine Alex. I tried your tip of marking the screen and nudging the prom back to the mark every now and then, but I still could not get an automated alignment. I tried everything I could think of, then gave up and done it myself. 80 odd frames was a total PITA.

Alan, do you do the align in Registax 5?

If so, use one alignment point only and pick a very big box (can't remember the sizes) and pick one very prominent region that will be in every shot. Sometimes this just fouls up 2 or three images, I then just do them manually.
